Domestic Abuse is no different from "rape" suburban husbands may rule the world, they may be blessed with education, affluence and power. But there is no excuse for domestic violence or emotional rape. There is no excuse for pornography and "smut" or emotional garbage. No matter how privileged your social status, you have no right to bully, or disrespect your wife. You do not OWN her. Slavery is against the law.

Most of the labor in the world is done by women: that is a fact. Across the world, women bear the children and women care for the children. It is women who raise, process and market food, work in factories and sweatshops, clean the home and office building, engage in barter, create and invent group survival.

Women Were the First Slaves

In the West, women found themselves throughout medieval ages in an especially oppressive condition resulting from the cultural views implicit in Catholicism. The chief document used to suppress witchcraft, Malleus Mallificarum by the Dominicans Kramer and Sprenger, was commissioned by the Pope in 1486:

The main reason for woman's frequent alliance with evil is that "she is more carnal than a man, as is clear from her many carnal abominations ... there was a defect in the formation of the first woman, since she was formed from a bent rib ... And since through this defect she is an imperfect animal, she always deceives ... To conclude: All witch-craft comes from carnal lust, which in women is insatiable."

Social Action to Lift Woman
The Vedas teach 'Matru Devobhava' (Mother is God). If truly God is Mother, then why do the nations and races commit the atrocity of neglect and callousness toward women? In India, H R Bhardwaj and his wife Prafullata Bhardwaj are trying to raise public consciousness toward "realizing" (in deed not just word) the ideal of upliftment of woman. Indeed, they remind us, "the culture of a community will be considered noble only if it respects and educates its women."

Lily AllenEye of the Beholder
Clothing is vital, just as food is. We enjoy dressing beautifully quite as much as we enjoy eating. We go to endless expense and effort to clothe our bodies beautifully. But like the lilies of the field, even the apparel we once cherished can fade from our fancy. A husband will slave and sacrifice to buy his wife an exquisite outfit or pair of sexy shoes that she has her heart set upon -- and on which she later pins her pride. When she wears her cherished attire, he beams, basking in reflected glory. And she, in turn, is so happy over it, it is the most important thing in her existence, that is, for a while. They may disagree, now. She loathes the dress or pumps she once adored, while like some men, he may "appreciate his wife more" when he sees other men doting on her. How true that ubi amor, ibi oculus.

Women link appearance and self esteem.
(News Front) Most women around the world said that how they look is an important element of their self-esteem and identity, according to Avon's 2003 Global Women's Survey of more than 21,000 women in 24 countries. Respondents also reported that while appearance is important, the majority appreciate what nature has given them and find personal satisfaction in looking their best. (commercial site).

Your voice is crucial
Women's role is indispensable. After so long without a voice, women everywhere are now being heard.

In Passing

Gloria Guiness

With a profile like Nefertiti, she had the self-assurance of a goddess. How much of this was cultivated, and how much was in-born? Only Gloria knew. Here is what she had to say on the subject: "Elegance is a gift of nature... Chic is a fashion... a well-studied attitude... An ingrained sense of exhibitionism." (from Harper's Bazaar.)

Another memorable quote: "Elegance is in the brain as well as the body and in the soul. Jesus Christ is the only example we have of any one human having possessed all three at the same time." (Gloria Guiness. In Harper's Bazaar, 1963).

Gloria was like a swan washed up on the shore. She was the embodiment of elegance, but arrived out of nowhere. All the big name photographers of her day wanted to take her picture. She dressed in sleek silhouettes and favored clothing by Balenciega, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent. She made sure that her clothing matched the decor of the great houses she lived in -- and the men she wished to inspire. "A woman's job is to please a man," said she, "I dress accordingly."

What is behind white man's fear of woman? Perhaps it is his deep-
rooted fear that if she becomes his equal, she will then be superior.
